William Austin, MAI, AARE, AMM, SRES
My name is William A. Austin, or Andy, and I have been a commercial appraiser for nearly 15 years and have a lifelong interest in auctions. I am a licensed auctioneer, appraiser, and real estate salesperson in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and hold the MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute, and the AMM and AARE designations from the National Auctioneers Association, and the SRES designation from the National Association of REALTORS.
My appraisal career began in 2005 at a small appraisal firm in Roanoke, VA until 2007 when I moved to a large private appraisal firm in Richmond. I formed my own company, Austin Appraisal & Consulting in 2012 and completed the MAI designation in 2013. I have completed appraisal assignments throughout Virginia for a broad range of property types including improved multi-family, retail, special-purpose, and industrial properties, high-value residential properties and vacant residential, industrial, and agricultural sites. Clients have included banks, attorneys, insurance companies, and private landowners.
In 2016, I obtained auctioneer licensure in Virginia and formed Double A Auction & Realty with a focus on real estate auctions. I am currently a member of the Virginia Auctioneers Association (VAA) and the National Auctioneers Association (NAA). I completed the AARE (Accredited Auctioneer of Real Estate) in October of 2019 and the SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designation in September of 2019. In 2018, I completed the requirements for the NAA's Auction Marketing Manager (AMM) designation. In addition to real estate and personal property auctions, I consult with other auctioneers for live simulcast auctions using BidWrangler technology.
I would love the opportunity to discuss auctions and real estate with you.
